shallots, peeled and sliced

Foolproof and AMAZING. I actually forgot about the sauce while the wine was reducing, it went down to nothing and I thought the sauce was ruined. Figured I'd pour the stock in anyway (I used chicken stock since I didn't have veal stock) and just see what happened...it still tasted unbelievable.
Poured this sauce over a broiled Rib-eye -- one of the best meals I've had in ages, restaurants included.
Also -- I only had 1 shallot but I put in the same amount of liquid and let it reduce a lot. It was still quite good.
